Taco N Madre is one of the many must-try Mexican restaurants in Ocala.
Situated at the intersection of Pine Avenue and Silver Springs Boulevard, Taco N Madre has been serving up authentic Mexican cuisine for the last 15 years.
Taco ‘N Madre, which offers a drive through and delivery services through GrubHub, bitesquad, and doordash, has all of the traditional Mexican staples that make its menu 100% authentic.
From drinks like horchata, a milky drink made from rice, to Jarritos, fruity carbonated beverages popular in Mexico, to classic dishes like tostadas, burritos, and tacos, Taco ‘N Madre is sure to satisfy diners looking tastes across the border.
Those popular dishes come with a wide variety of meats, including favorites like carne asada (seasoned skirt steak) and al pastor, which is based on shawarma spit-grilled meat that was introduced to Mexico by Lebanese immigrants.
Another authentic dish that might be a little less well-known are the sopes, which are made from masa that is fried and topped with vegetables and meat. The masa used by Taco ‘N Madre is the same masa used to make tamales and tortillas, which the restaurant makes from scratch on a regular basis.
The restaurant also offers a couple of specialities that are only available on weekends, including menudo, a traditional Mexican soup, made with cow’s stomach in broth with a red chili pepper base.
A collection of “all day specials” give diners the opportunity to try out different combinations, and all of the specials are accompanied by rice and beans.
Taco ‘N Madre is open every day from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., except on Sunday when it closes at 9:00 p.m.
